Do you know the inflammation response?

A splinter breaking the skin set off a battle within the body — the inflammatory response which is under the direct control of the innate intelligence of the body.

Innate intelligence sends mast cells at the site of the injury to release chemicals that affect nearby capillaries.  Then it commands the tiny blood vessels to expand their walls and become more porous.  As additional blood flows into the area, the skin reddens and heats up.  Blood serum seeping from the leaky capillaries makes the wounded tissue swell and grow tender.

Within an hour, the innate intelligence of the body sends white blood cells, called neutrophils, to mobilize and to fight invading microbes that rode in on the splinter.  These small cells speed to the battle site, slither through capillary walls, and gobble up bacteria.

Amazing isn’t it?
